    What about the last frontier? Alaska. We have a few 20-40 mile singletrack trails all within the same area for easy shuttling. Beautifull mountains, rivers, glaciers, and wildlife.

    Hey AKmojo:

    I've always thought about riding up in AK. I've never been that far north. What's the singletrack like where you are - enough to occupy a fella for a week? XC? Lots of climbing? Where do you live?

    I hope to get up there one day soon!
    Keep ridin',

    I sent you a PM but for everyone else, yes you could easily spend a week here and pedal 100 miles of singletrack through Alaskan wilderness.

    i will have to second the motion on Tahoe. best riding spot i have ever been. every type of trail and riding you have ever dreamed of. best scenery and yes it is close to the mecca of AM riding, Downiville, if i remember right it was about a 2 hour drive from my old house in Tahoe City. I'm gonna move back after college. only 5 years to go after school gets out this summer. It's that great!! I would defiantly take a tour if you guys were there.
    Ride & Smile

    Weeeell Id like to take credit for them but honestly with a backdrop like the Himalayas, its really just a matter of point and shoot and the pic is going to turn out awesome. But I'll take the complement anyway, its just what I need right now to give me incentive to get off my ass and write up my ride reports from a really fun couple of night rides I just did in Malaysia in the jungle!

    New Mexico - Can't beat it. Lots of Riding options. From the Rocky Mountains Up North (Taos, Angel Fire) Down through the Rio Grande Valley (Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Albuquerque) or down south in the Desert Mountains (Las Cruces, El Paso).

    Check out the New Mexico Thread. Lots of pics and vids from the locals

    Hey Matt:

    Tahoe is definitely on the radar, but not for 2009. Too many things on the go right now. Perhaps in 2010? Feel free to drop me a line: ride@sacredrides.com with your thoughts, ideas, qualifications,etc...

    Yes, I was just at a tourism conference where NOrway did a presentation. It looks absolutely stunning. We might head there in summer 2010!

    That list doesn't include St. George, Utah with many world class trails such as Gooseberry Mesa, Little Creek Mountain, JEM, Zen Trail, the Red Rock Rampage site and much more. Truly the most fun area I've ever found to mountain bike

    So true! There are trails near Bear Glacier, outside Seward Alaska that seem like a Fairytale.

    Tiny perfect flowers on waving fields of green with snow-capped gorges and mountains in the distance. Meadows that you just take off your shoes and walk on the dry moss until you see a little rock rimmed pond filled with ice cold water (in the Summer) maybe 2 feet deep.

    Zero litter, and not a soul in sight. I am spoiled rotten living in Santa Barbara, California, and Alaska has us beat in some regards.
